West Ham v Watford Premier League Preview, 10th February 3.00pm
West Ham didn’t do themselves any favours on the weekend as they suffered a loss against Brighton which leaves them in that tight battle in the bottom half of the table. That snapped a good streak of unbeaten form that they were on. Watford will be looking to improve on some pretty dodgy away form through which has really been dragging them down.
West Ham v Watford Betting Odds*
West Ham 13//10, Watford 11/5, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:33 a.m.)
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers were on a good six-match undefeated streak of form (W2 D4) before losing heavily out at Brighton on the weekend. That was a pretty poor response from them, but they are unbeaten in three at home at least (W1 D2). Overall this season the Hammers have gone W4 D4 L4 at home, but they have only lost one of their last six on home soil now (W2 D3) so they do have that going for them. Their last two home games against Bournemouth and Crystal Palace have ended in a 1-1 draw and in the BetVictor Correct Score market the 1-1 draw option is at 19/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:33 a.m.). The Irons have not been overly prolific at home this season having scored just the fourteen goals in their twelve games so far. They have netted in each of their last six though at the London Stadium and overall home and away have scored in each of their last nine, so that’s another positive for them. They have only been ahead at half time just once at home this term, so the half time draw should appeal.
Watford News and Form
Watford have collected only one point from their last six away games now, that point coming in a 0-0 draw at Stoke in their last away fixture. During that six-match away sequence the Hornets failed to score in half of those games as well, so they have been really travel sick lately. Their defence has really had a hard time in earning clean sheets since the end of November really and overall for the entire season have taken a clean sheet in just 24% of their league games. With their lack of goals on the road recently, both teams not to score at BetVictor for a 4/5 quote* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:33 a.m.) may have some appeal to punters. All of a sudden they are now stuck in that bottom half of the table where pretty much anything can happen and teams beneath them having been picking up points more consistently than they have lately. So now the Hornets really have to dig to get themselves going out on the road. Under 2.5 goals is probably going to be the option to roll with in this one as neither are going to want to give up points in what should be a tight duel. Their big win over Chelsea at Vicarage Road on Monday may well have been the catalyst they needed to get themselves some momentum.
West Ham v Watford Head to Head
Watford were 2-0 home winners over the Hammers earlier in the season and that is a three-match undefeated streak that the Hornets have put together against West Ham (W2 D1). The Hornets won this corresponding fixture last season 4-2. West Ham have won just one of their last six against Watford now and at home, they have won only one of their four previous Premier League games against the Hornets (W1 D1 L2).
Who will win – West Ham v Watford Predictions
West Ham may have enough in the tank to find a win from somewhere in this one. It will be a tight battle all the way most likely. The Hammers were doing alright in not losing games before they bumped into Brighton last weekend. The same can’t be said of Watford. Home win.
